in absentia


Cecilia White


waiting is more than habit

old wool chafing

your mind’s skin.

thin never felt like this

one layer left. undercover

you shift feet, pace refuses

time, ignores the tick

of metal, glass and boxes.

you can’t contain yourself

in absentia, that space

full and void in crisis.

without reason, you feel

engineering has nothing to do

with eternity, loping corridor

incomplete with closure. window

sash ragging in your hands.
